Rodolfo Stavenhagen: "The United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: The Challenge of Implementation"

6137 McKeldin Library
Thursday, April 15, 2010 - 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM

The Department of History and University of Maryland Libraries is hosting the Nathan and Jeanette Miller Distinguished Lecture in History and Public Affairs with Dr. Rodolfo Stavenhagen on Thursday, April 15, 2010.

Dr. Stavenhagen's talk is entitled "The United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples:  The Challenge of Implementation."  In 2007 the United Nations proclaimed the declaration after twenty years of negotiations.  The international recognition brought about new challenges for the indigenous people.  In the Americas, whereas some states are taking up the challenge, others appear to take steps backward.  Stavenhagen asks "Where are we now? What are the prospects?

Dr. Stavenhagen is a professor of sociology.  He is the author of Making the Declaration: The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.  He has worked with the International Labor Organization, the Mexican National Commission on Human Rights, and the Instituto Indigenista Interamericano. 

This event is free and open to the public.
